The notorious Dolton cop who ended up on the front pages for beating up a 15-year-old special ed student and being involved in a shady self-defense shooting has hit the headlines once more, this time being accused of rape and facing jail time.
The 38-year-old Christopher Lloyd is known for the May 2009 incident when he was caught on the school surveillance cam video breaking the nose of a special needs student because his shirt wasn’t tucked in. After the video leaked online, Dolton Police Department refused to disclose the name of the officer responsible for violently throwing the boy into the lockers, then smashing his face to the floor while hitting him repeatedly, which left the special ed student Marshawn Pitts with a broken nose, busted lip and cuts all over his face. The incident was covered up and justified by both Dolton officials and Academy of Learning High School Pitts was attending.
This isn’t the first time Lloyd was involved in a police brutality incident. In February 2008, his ex-wife filed a wrongful death suit against him after he shot her new husband Cornell McKinney 24 times in front of their children. Chicago police accepted his claims of acting in self-defense and he got away with only a short-time suspension.
Lloyd finally ended up behind bars after an Indiana woman accused him threatening her with a knife at her home in Hammond and raping her with a pillow over her head. He is now facing up to 20 years in prison for rape, criminal deviate conduct, criminal confinement and sexual battery. He’s being held on a $110,000 bail in an Indiana jail while awaiting trial.
